Mountain View Trail



27.07 km long
Mountain Bike

The Mountain View Trail is one of the most impressive bike trails in the Bernese Oberland. In addition to crisp sections, you will enjoy great views too.

The tour begins in Lauterbrunnen. The asphalt road climbs up slightly to Stechelberg.

From Stechelberg, you need to take the Gondola to reach Gimmelwald.

The ride through the picturesque Mürren is very relaxing. After the village, the ascent begins via Mittelberg and Oberberg on the alpine road. From Point 1880 the trail fun starts. The trail surface is very varied, it alternates between stone, gravel and dirt. The next ascent begins at 1767 metres above sea level. You may need to push the bike as far as Marchegg. The downhill fun continues over Läger to Chüebodmi. The first few metres are difficult due to the steps however after this the trail gets easier and more fluid. Shortly after the Sousbach crossing, you’ll face the next challenge: The tight curves on loose gravel are technically difficult to navigate. After the last short ascent at Chüebodmi, the descent begins via wider and technically easier paths to Lauterbrunnen.
